Generally this is because you didnt clean out the machine & so detergent dries in the jets & blocks them. Take apart clean & hey presto. next time rinse thoroughly when you finish & if you lend it someone dont believe they have rinsed it properly.

Water won't spray when I squeeze the trigger. How do I get it to spray the solution?


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your unit doesn't spray water. It could be that the !) water tank is empty which you can fill heavy duty bladder with hot tap water. 2) If Formula tank is empty, you can fill it with Bissell 2x formula for cleaning. 3) If tank may not be seated properly, turn the power off, remove and reseat the tank. 4) If pump may have lost prime, try to turn off and then turn on the unit, wait for one minute and depress trigger. If still nothing happens, I suggest you contact Bissell 1-800-237-7691 for further assistance.

Why doesn't the spray trigger release any cleaning solution when it is squeezed?


The water pump is most likely burned out and needs to be replaced. Carpet machines are notorious for broken water pumps.

Hoover troubleshooting


Hi! Try these quick and easy steps to get the water from your hose to spray.

Assemble the hose to the unit.

While holding the hose at an angle towards the ground, pump the trigger about 30 times. Turn the cleaner on then squeeze the trigger for 30 seconds.

If the water is still not dispensing there may be soap residue bulid-up clogging the nozzle/valve. Try soaking the trigger end in warm water for a couple hours, then repeating the steps above.

If the cleaner is still not dispensing from the hose but dispenses from the unit, a replacement hose may be needed. Follow the link below to order a replacement hose for your cleaner. Search Results

Hoover brush and wash instruction manual


Hi there! To prepare for cleaning, put the solution and water in the top tank. While cleaning, all the dirty water gets sucked into the bottom tank. To clean squeeze trigger to release cleaning solution and slowly push carpet cleaner forward, this equals one wet stroke. Continue to squeeze trigger and slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you (second wet stroke). Release trigger and slowly push carpet cleaner forward over area just sprayed with solution (dry stroke). Then slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you without squeezing trigger (dry stroke). To avoid saturating the carpet don't do more than 4 wet strokes over one area. Always end with dry strokes. Here is a link to view the instruction manual if needed.

I CANT GET MY BISSELL SPOTLIFTER MODEL 1716 TO SPRAY THE SOLUTION.


1) Make sure there is water in the solution tank.

2) Try priming the machine by instructing the consumer to squeeze the trigger

repeatedly for 1 to 2 full minutes. Important: If you cannot

squeeze the trigger all the way in, remove the tank from the back of the

machine and then try squeezing the trigger with the tank removed. There is an

internal valve that could be sticking. By removing the solution tank and squeezing

the trigger, it should break it loose, allowing the trigger to be fully depressed.

3) Make sure the open end of the siphon tube in the solution tank is not pushed into the

side of the tank, covering the end of tube. If it is, push the bend in the

Siphon tube toward the back of the solution tank.

4) Check to see if the siphon tube has become disconnected from the outlet fitting on

the inside of the solution tank. If so, you need to buy a replacement solution tank. Parts

can be found at www.bissell.com

5) Check to see if air comes through the spray tip by repeatedly squeezing the trigger

with solution tank off the unit. If not, spray tip may be clogged. Try and unclog

spray tip with a pin or paper clip.

If still no spray, please check the following:

a) Make sure the solution tank is installed properly.

b) Check to see if black O-ring is present on rear connector to solution tank.

My bissell will spray out of the hose, but no water or soap when i squeeze the trigger? The belt is turning the pump


See if your tank is seating properly. I bet it's sitting up a bit. Is there water in the little well where it sets?

Hoover steamvac won't spray water on carpet.


Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.

There is a valve at the bottom of the tank, push it in and see if it goes in and out ok. The tank sits on the reservior asm., a rod in the handle pushes it when you squeeze the trigger. You may have a problem with the rod not releasing or a bad reservior asm.

Hoover Steam Vac with Rinse


The bottom tank is for the dirty water, the top tank, it has a small tank attached to it for the shampoo, clear hot water goes in the bigger tank. Then turn it on, squeeze the trigger as you pull it backwards. It will spray and vacuum up at about the same time.
